4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Truely a great pale ale. Wow! Super hoppy - just the way I like it! Taken one point off because it’s a little too alcoholic for me. Would like to drink more of this without falling over!
This batch is well balanced - lot of malt but so lots of lovely hops! Very quaffable.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden-orange, medium white head. Strong aroma of mango, peach and grapefruit. Taste adds pineapple, pine, malt. Then the hops explosion. Very well balanced and very testy, smooth, creamy. Masterpiece!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is no shrinking violet. It unsubtly screams citrus, passionfruit, (is it maybe over ripe apricots as well?) and resin. Gorgeous. It’s a very dynamic aroma: in the background the apricot rolls into a yeasty bread cooking in the oven smell which then rolls into some kind of roast nut... but there’s no way I’m gonna spend my time sniffin’ this; it’s screaming "Drink me, bi-yatch!" So I drink. Hugely bitter but immediately balanced with the sweet tastes of the aroma. Simple straightforward IPA, unpretentious, and very drinkable.

Fantastic ipa, up there with hopwired. Beautiful flavours and a nice balance that rolls to an aggressive bitterness. Winner.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2016 0,33L can bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy orange to golden colour with thin to medium white head. Aroma: Floral aroma of grapefruit and some tropical fruits from Nelson Sauvin hops. Aroma of stone fruit, resin, pine, apricot and citrus from Rakau hops. Taste: Citric and piney flavour with medium to high bitterness. The bitterness is quite sharp and the intensity increases by time. Also with some really subtle malt sweetness. Palate: Medium to full body. The carbonation is quite high, with some prickly and sticky texture. Long-lasting, bitter finish with citrus and piney aftertaste. Overall: An intense and hoppy IPA. The two kiwi hops, Nelson Sauvin and Rakau, have demonstrated different hops characters, yet they match with each other perfectly. Enjoy this IPA while admire the drawing of the "pernicious weed" on the can !

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
And I thought GPs Death from Above was great beer, this was exceptional. 650ml bottle from Purple Palate poured a dark golden colour with nice head. Smelt great on the pour but its the initial taste that got me. The Nelson Sauvin hops really burst through in your mouth with all those wonderful tastes of citrus, pine and grapefruit but its the kick on the palate that was exceptional. Extreme bitterness that lingers well on, and very easy to drink for an 8% abv.Fantastic beer not unlike Hopwired, but GP does it again. Probably in my top 5 beers.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Grumlig bärnstensfärgad vätska med stort ljust skum. Doftar fantastiskt, nyskuren fruktsallad blandat med ängladam. Fruktig humledröm med stor beska. Riktigt jävla bra!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Draught: Pours quite a murky golden colour and has a big sweet tropical hop hit on the nose. Pineapple and feijoa on the palate which has good length.
Bottle rerate: This thing is bone dry with a great nose and not as syrupy as I got from the taps. Sadly this beer is not widely available as it has the potential to be one of the best beers in the country.
2014 Rerate - still about the same, but now could be more widely available - Happy campers!!
